Matawan, NJ (September 20, 2019) – Atrium Post Acute Care and Atrium Senior Living of Matawan are successfully eliminating the ill effects of transfer trauma in patients as they move through the health care system. Transfer Trauma can occur when an individual must adapt to a new health care situation, such as transferring from a hospital to post-acute care center and then back home as well as moving into an assisted living community. It contributes to health problems and hospital readmissions, particularly among seniors.  Atrium Health of Matawan has implemented state-of-the art, patient-centered protocols to optimize stabilization and recovery.

“Atrium Post Acute Care of Matawan has created a Transition Plan for caregivers to ensure that our patients have everything they need at this critical transition,” said Heather Stockman, Administrator of Atrium Post Acute Care of Matawan. “By working with caregivers when our patients are working toward recovery, we can mitigate the risk of transfer trauma, improve their experience, and greatly improve their outcomes.” Brian Long, Executive Director at Atrium Senior Living of Matawan adds, “While we’re working hard to ensure a safe transition, we also know that it can be scary to move into an assisted living. So, we learn all about the resident and we work hard to communicate that they are understood and appreciated as a person, not just a medical condition.”

The Transition Plan incorporates a series of strategic elements, which ensure a thorough, customized, positive experience for the patient:
